Flowers For Skid Row

The Hippie Kitchen gets many different and wonderful volunteers. Many come to offer their much-needed support in the preparation of and in serving our beans, salad, and bread. Others still envision new offerings for the downtown houseless population served at the Hippie Kitchen.

Ashley and Greer have been volunteering as part of their high school’s community service requirements. However, in wanting to do something more, they coordinated to bring materials to provide potted plants to the residents that frequent our kitchen. They returned on Friday, March 24, with 25 pots they had made in their pottery class along with potting soil and a variety of flowers and herbs. They spent the morning offering folks a chance to pick a pot and plant to take with them. It did not take long for all the pots and plants to go. Folks are still talking about their plants they took for themselves or for a friend. A big THANK YOU to Ashley and Greer.
